From Taiwan Sourcing

Made from wild material of Baoshan area instead of the familiar Yi Wu, this wonderful tea cake is another cake that has been stored in Taiwan for over a decade. Moreover, unlike another similar cake which also has an “Artistic Font” wrapper, this “Iron Cake” was pressed with steel mold, so the overall character of this iron cake is very different from the one from Yi Wu.

Interestingly, this more hardly pressed tea cake seemed to age faster than the more loosely pressed version as one can see in the picture. This tea cake also carries a subtle note of plum and delicate layer that is different from the robustness of tea material from Yi Wu.
